Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen SLAM Former Intern Suing For Overwork Without Pay — Get The Latest On The Scandal HERE!
The Olsen Twins are SO over the lawsuit filed against them from a former intern!
On Friday, it was reported that Mary-Kate and Ashley are seeking to have the legal case brought about by Shahista Lalani thrown out. Whoa!
According to DailyMail, the former tween superstars have shot down Miz Lalani's claims that they took advantage of at least 40 interns by working them to the bone and paying them NOTHING.
In fact, they've since called the now designer a liar and have stated they in no way acted in a
The Olsen Twins SUED By 40 Former Interns That Claim They Worked 50 Hour Weeks Without Pay Or College Credit! Get The Crazy Deets HERE!
Uh-oh, what would Danny Tanner think about this?!
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that the Olsen Twins are being sued by a former intern at the moguls' fashion house, The Row. The intern, Shahista Lalani, has organized a class action lawsuit with 40 other interns that are demanding compensation for 50 hour work weeks they endured without pay or college credit. Not to mention the interns allege they worked under horrible and excruciating conditions!
"It was like 100 degrees outside. I'd just be sweating to death. I probably carried like 50 pounds worth of trench coats. I'd be inputting data into spreadsheets, making tech sheets, running personal errands for paid employees, organizing materials, photocopying, sewing, pattern cutting, among other related duties."
While those tasks sound like the common duties of an intern, the now designer claims paid employees should have taken on some of these duties. Not to mention it's illegal to hire an intern without some form of compensation, whether it be monetary or educational.
"The head technical designer was very demanding. I was doing the work of three interns. I was talking to her all day, all night. E-mails at nighttime for the next day, like 10 p.m. at night. She was like, ‘Go get my Advil. I need this and this because I'm feeling sick and I have this meeting."
Unsurprisingly, Mary-Kate and Ashley's company rep shot back, saying:
"As an initial matter, Dualstar is an organization that is committed to treating all individuals fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws. The allegations in the complaint filed against Dualstar are groundless, and Dualstar will vigorously defend itself against plaintiff's claims in court, not before the media. Dualstar is confident that once the true facts of this case are revealed, the lawsuit will be dismissed in its entirety."
Sounds like this is about to get contentious! We just wonder why Shahista waited so long to file the lawsuit…
So, whose side are U on?
It definitely just got really hot in here!
Amber Heard wore a barely-there slip of a dress to the Tiffany Blue Book Dinner in New York on Wednesday, and we see no cause for complaints!
Her gold silk The Row frock clung to every curve, and we have a feeling she opted out of wearing any underthings — naughty!
In fact, it looks like there was a nipple poking through the thin fabric!
Almost everything about the actress was perfect, but her hair could've been just a little less messy.

Well, this is definitely going to brighten up your Monday!
We couldn't be more delighted with their choice!
And the cover is giving us some serious winter party vibes! Lupita's white The Row halter top and sparkling drop earrings have us dreaming of all the Christmas and NYE soirees that await!
Which was probably the point of the cover, since it's for the December issue, after all!
Inside the spread, the outfits are more whimsical, featuring colorful dresses by Miu Miu, Christopher Kane, and Dior. But, really, it's the white outfits, including a Celine sweater dress, that really take the cake!
Enjoy all the pics (above)!

Siblings are often close, but twin siblings are even closer!
Look at how they're holding onto each other in the above pic! Sisterly bonds can never be broken!
Of course they also dress in the loose, slouchy clothes their fashion line The Row is known for, and we wouldn't expect anything less.
You know what'd be awesome? If they wore bandage dresses and got sunless tans for Halloween! Ha!

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Go Casual For Their NYFW Presentation, But It's This Vine That Has Everyone Talking!
While we haven't seen Mary-Kate or Ashley attend any shows, we can only guess it's because they've been busy prepping for their very own presentation!
The duo made their way to The Row's Spring 2015 presentation on Monday in polished ensems fit for any showing.
Ashley first stepped out in a cream blouse, worn skinnies, and taupe lace-ups. While it definitely felt casual overall, she also styled it with a matching silky scarf worn over her shoulders and a smattering of bold bangles.
Meanwhile, MK dressed in a two-toned blazer over a fully monochromatic outfit consisting of a chic sweater, black trousers, and her fave pumps.
We can only imagine they wanted the presentation to speak for itself! Unfortunately, a Vine of the flawless twins taken by user Vanessa Friedman kind of stole the show.
Watch just how awkward MK & A can get while being filmed (below)!
The fraternal twins look supremely regal and elegant in long robes with their blonde highlighted hair beautifully mussed up.
It just blows our mind that they used to play the adorable Michelle Tanner in Full House.
Honestly, if anybody had told you the twins would end up in control of a billion dollar empire and their own critically lauded fashion brand, would you have ever believed it?
We're not sure we would have!
